Going Vertical: Citizen-led Reform Campaigns in the Philippines

Joy Aceron, Edt.

Publisher: G-Watch and the Accountability Research Center (ARC)


Going Vertical is a result of action-research collaboration between Government Watch (G-Watch) and the Accountability Research Center (ARC) on multi-level citizen action for acountability. This book invetsigates how one strategic approach to citizen accountability – vertical integration – enabled seven reform initiatives in the Philippines to gain meaningful results.

This book is an expanded version of a research report published in December 2016, supported by a grant from Making All Voices Count (MAVC). The research was conducted in 2015 and 2016 by a team of researchers from the Philippines through the G-Watch Program that was then housed in the Ateneo School of Government, in partnership with the Accountability Research Center at American University, Washington DC, USA, and the Institute of Development Studies, UK.
